Danny Ward registered a clean sheet as Wales left Estonia with a hard-earned 1-0 victory in 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying.

On his 22nd appearance for the Dragons, the Leicester City shot-stopper made an impressive save to deny Vlasiy Sinyavskiy late on as Kieffer Moore's 12th-minute effort ultimately settled the clash. Wales' third win of six qualifiers leaves them third in European Group E, with 11 points, five adrift of Belgium.

Elsewhere, Çağlar Söyüncü was in action for Turkey at Daugava Stadium as the Crescent-Stars picked up a 2-1 win over Latvia. Merih Demiral's own goal for the visitors was levelled by Serdar Dursun before Burak Yılmaz's dramatic, 99th-minute penalty left Turkey third in European Group G with 15 points. 

Full-back Luke Thomas started for England's Under-21s, who despite being reduced to 10 men after Rhian Brewster's red card, held out for a 1-0 triumph in Andorra, courtesy of Emile Smith Rowe's breakaway goal. Thomas, an Academy graduate at the Club, played the full 90 minutes.

Those three points leave England third in Group G of qualifying for the 2023 UEFA European Under-21 Championships, which will be staged in Romania and Georgia. They have seven points from three games, two less than the Czech Republic and Albania.

Earlier in the day, youngsters Sammy Braybrooke and Kian Pennant were both second-half substitutes as England's Under-18s secured a 3-0 victory over Russia in Marbella. Goals from Sonny Perkins, Michael Olakigbe and Lewis Hall gave Ryan Garry his first win in charge of the Young Lions.

Goalkeeper Brad Young, on the other hand, was unused from the bench as England's Under-20s recorded an emphatic 5-0 success in the Czech Republic.
